It feels a bit odd posting these Summery outfit posts now that it seems to be Autumn but I didn't want good outfit photos to go to waste! And they were only taken last Sunday when London had a last blast attempt at Summer.
Top - Topshop
Shorts - Warehouse
Hat - H&M
Sunglasses - Primark
This top is OLD, I mean really old. I bought it in my student days (ahem, 6 years ago!), in fact I wore it the evening I went out for my graduation meal (at 60 Hope Street, for any Liverpool readers out there) and as I was leaving I remember the waitress asking me where it was from. It actually just ties at the back so is pretty much backless but I forget to get a photo of that, d'oh!
I really love the print, I feel it has a Orla Kiely, 70s feel about it, and I can imagine my mum would have worn dresses out of prints like this back in her hey-day! Orange and brown aren't normally colours I would go for, but they work so well together, and I guess with colours like this and styled correctly this top could take me from Summer to Winter. Any suggestions what I would wear it with to make it a bit more Autumnal?!
I'm a real Winter girl at heart so I can't wait for it to be officially scarves, gloves and hats time of year. But for now, I thought you could all cling on to Summer with these photos...
I hope you don't mind!
all about the girl
Speaking of Orla Kiely, have you seen her latest collection in Uniqlo? Has anyone purchased one of the dresses, I'm really loving them but not sure smock style suits me.....!
